Intelligent Systems Market Expected to Explode


The intelligent systems market, a new sub-category recently identified by research firm, International Data Corporation (IDC), along with Intel, Microsoft, and other industry leaders, is the next big opportunity in the embedded world. The industry is in the midst of a rapid evolution from isolated, fixed-function devices to smart, cloud-connected systems. This new breed of electronics is bringing together everything from enterprise IT to consumer electronics in a continuum of connected, interacting devices.

According to the research by IDC, the market for intelligent systems will reach nearly 4 billion units by 2015, representing over $2 trillion in revenue. By the IDC definition, intelligent systems incorporate:
  • Advanced processing capabilities (e.g., 32-bit and higher multi-core processors with integrated graphics and media engines)
  • Support for higher level operating systems, applications, and Internet access
  • Wired or wireless connectivity to the network, other devices, and the cloud
  • Built-in solutions for security, manageability, and context awareness (including intuitive user recognition)
  • Cloud-enabled commerce and services
